Landau will be instrumental in accelerating the growth of Transporeon’s powerful global freight network of +1,400 shippers and +145,000 carriers, creating a vibrant ecosystem and helping shippers, load recipients, service providers, freight forwarders, and carriers to connect, communicate, collaborate, and share data to realize operational benefits and new business opportunities while unlocking data value and reducing carbon emissions.
Landau joins Transporeon with extensive experience at companies such as Manhattan Associates and Cloud Logistics. Most recently, he served as Chief Product Officer at BluJay Solutions.
“We’re thrilled to welcome David into our Transporeon family,” said Stephan Sieber, CEO of Transporeon. “David’s extensive industry experience is a perfect complement to our team, and I’m delighted that he is on board to help us further drive our mission of bringing transportation in sync with the world.”
“I’ve always admired the team, mission, and success of Transporeon. Transportation is, after all, an ecosystem,” said David Landau. “Transporeon has developed one of the largest logistics networks in the world, which gives it unparalleled connectivity, data, and capabilities. To be part of the team that will lead the continued growth of the ecosystem to the benefit of shippers, logistics service providers, and the environment is a true honor.”
Landau replaces Thomas Einsiedler, who will explore new endeavors after 10 years of dedicated leadership at Transporeon. Landau and Einsiedler will work together to ensure a smooth handover in the coming months.
